Apparently the word leaked on an unofficial Google blog site and they followed up with an "oops" official blog post.
Either way, the word is out and the web browser "industry" is in for a
shake up. Google is releasing their own web browser called Google
Chrome. Apparently it includes pieces from Webkit (I’m guessing the
browser part) and Firefox (I’m guessing the chrome part) and will be
developed as an open source project.
The first beta will be
released tomorrow (Tuesday). I’ve heard rumors but always dismissed
them. Why would they do that when we have a handful of pretty good
browsers already. I guess the rumors were true and given the beta comes
out now, it’s been in the works for a while.
